These kids said “Fuck The Establishment!” then watched a VHS copy of “The Craft” on the mini-van ride home.
This blog is the best
I'm Tara, I'm 24, I like cats, halloween, and intersectional feminism. I write things, kind of.
Legend has it that Hemingway, after reading a review of his work that he didn’t like, strode into the reviewer’s office and slapped him across the face with a book. Upset over a line that questioned his bravado — the line compared his writing style to “wearing false hair on the chest” — Hemingway tore off his shirt to prove his chest hair was real. This week, The New Republic republished the article that started the fight. (For a lighter take on the author, you could read Stephanie Bernhard on cooking recipes in Hemingway’s fiction.)
Give your cat the F L O A T I N G J U D G E M E N T B O X to allow them to stare at your half finished work from afar
That cat is going to eat those flowers, you know.
the cat is never going to just sit there
A vigil held for Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager gunned down by Ferguson, Mo., police on Saturday in disputed circumstances, turned into what the media described as a riot on Monday evening.
But while national coverage has focused on the indisputably counterproductive violence and destruction committed by Ferguson residents during a moment of anguish, videos and photos taken from the scene show local police aggravating the situation as well.
Police firing tear gas and rubber bullets into residents’ faces and that’s NOT described as a riot? Fuck this bullshit prison industrial complex, THIS IS ANTIBLACK VIOLENCE AND SOCIAL CONTROL
Also, like, I always find the media reports of “riots” or “looting” kind of insulting—like what, do u think people are going to make changes to the systems that permeate and inhibit their lives without affecting the capitalist instruments of those systems? Like I saw a couple of people yesterday posting about the Watts and L.A. riots and I think the comparisons are apt. People who are not protected by the social system, who are in fact faced with a deeply entrenched, racist, misogynist system that seeks to DESTROY the lives of black people—YES they are going to lash out at the apparatus of that system, the stores and retail outlets and infrastructure.
i just can’t deal today im so sad about everything

This is so vague I love it. The voices you are hearing are real, god is speaking to you. The nation of France needs you. Don your armor, take up arms, lead the French army. This is your destiny, joan. When the flames come for you let them lick your bones and laugh.
